Start Here

I started this blog with the intention of cutting through some of the clutter to bring into focus a clear path that people can follow to start, grow and develop their own online business.

It started from a fascination with the limitless possibilities that are available for online business.

One of the most intriguing parts for me is the thought that my website can be online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week working away for me & that I don’t always have to be 100% involved every second to achieve results.

So that idea of leverage has always appealed to me.

But the thing that added the most fuel to the fire was when I started to achieve some success online.

There is nothing quite like waking up in the morning to see that you’ve made more money while you were sleeping than you will by getting up and going to your regular job.

It makes things much more fun – and opens up a lot of possibilities.

That’s not to say it doesn’t take work – it absolutely does.

It can take a lot of investment to make it come together.

Investments of time, energy, & money.

Once you have some momentum, you may be able to slow down a bit, but getting started it can be a bit of a grind.

And that brings me back to why I started this site – to reduce some of the investment needed to for you to get started on your dream.

At any rate, we have come up with a bit of an outline for you to follow – a place to start.

Getting Started

The first thing that I recommend you doing is downloading a free copy of our introductory course called “How to Get an Online Paycheck Doing What You Love” by clicking here.

It’s got a lot of great tips on how to get started with a website online, and gives you a great overview of the entire process.

Don’t be intimidated – setting up a website isn’t nearly as hard as you may think.

In fact, we’ll even help you out and setup some of it for you (more details in the course).

Once you’ve downloaded the course, make sure you read it over to get an idea of how it all works.

Step 1 – Find Your Niche

If you already have an idea for your website, or a topic you want to center your business around, you might be able to skip this step.

There are some great tips on how to choose a niche inside the “How to Get an Online Paycheck Doing What You Love” course, that you should follow.

In addition to that, I recommend that you check out the video series we’ve done on how to find a niche.

Get Your Domain and Hosting

Again, this part was covered in the “How to Get an Online Paycheck Doing What You Love” course, but it’s worth repeating.

What you want to do is make sure you are getting a good domain name. If you aren’t sure how to choose one, you can check out our article on it here.

After you’ve got your domain name chosen (not registered yet) now you can get your hosting.

We recommend using WordPress hosting from a reputable source like these people here.

And as mentioned in the course, if you buy your hosting through our link above, we will happily setup your WordPress site for you.

All you need to do is go to BossMarketingSupport.com, open up a support ticket and copy and paste in the hosting details that are sent to you once you purchase your hosting through our link above.

Once our team verifies that you bought through our link, we’ll setup your site for free.

It doesn’t get much easier than that.

Adding Style

Once your website is setup, you can now set it up however you want.

We’ve provided some great video tutorials inside the “How to Get an Online Paycheck Doing What You Love” course that will really help you get started – especially for a few of the little “nuts & bolts” of tweaking the setup for your new site.

Just to jump ahead, if you want a really professional looking theme for your website, check these guys out.

INDUSTRY SECRET: a lot of designer use themes from these guys and then re-sell them as finished websites to anyone looking for a website for thousands
of dollars!

You’ve Got the Basics Down!

At this point, you’ll have your website setup and ready to go!

From here, you’ll be either tweaking it or driving traffic to it.

Things to Add To Your Website

An Email List – You should setup an email list and start collecting email addresses as soon as you can.

In order to do this, you’ll need to use an autoresponder service.

We recommend using Getresponse, as we’ve found that they are the most reliable at delivering your email.

After all – what’s the point of using an autoresponder if they can’t deliver your email?

If you sign up for Getresponse using our link, we’ll give you a great video series on how to start and setup campaigns with them.

Just sign up for Getresponse through our link, forward your proof of purchase by email to gtraining@bossinternetmarketing.com and we’ll send you the training
for free.

We were originally going to charge for this course, but we’d rather give it away for people who are serious about growing their business.

Driving Traffic To Your Website

Automatically Posting to Social Media Sites – One of the first things you should do when setting up your website is to install this social sharing plugin

It’s free to use (you can upgrade later, but you don’t need to), and it will allow you to post the content from your blog instantly to all of your different social media accounts with one click.

It’s a huge time-saver and a great way to get some traffic to your blog.

Boss Traffic Methods – If you want some other ways to start generating more traffic to your blog, you can always check out our Products section where we have a variety of methods that work great as well.

Site Sections

The following are the different sections of the site, grouped into different categories. Oftentimes, there will be some (well, quite a bit) of overlap between the sections.

But here are their intended purposes:

HOW TO: Getting Up & Running – This is our “how to” section. If we are giving you step-by-step instructions, they will often be posted here.

Tools We Use to Get it Done – This section is all about the various tools that we use. They are listed as a resource designed to help you find products that actually work – things designed to really make your life a lot easier.

Supercharged Sales & Advertising – As per the title, this section covers mainly sales and advertising related information. It may include a case study from time to time, but in most cases, it will contain tips and insights related to selling online.

Next Level Biz Dev – This section will often cover a little “higher level” ie macro level, general business direction, overview type of stuff.

It’s kind of like the tips and tricks section on the “how to steer and or run your business.”
